For those of you curious minds. . . . . . .


On a previous post I made mention that my son Jacob has his first girlfriend, Raechel. Of course I realize as a Mom that this is a milestone in any teen's life. But, it only re-enforces the fact that we Mother's don't ever want to have to admit that our babies are growing up. That being said his poor Grandmothers' have been waiting forever to be able to meet the lucky young lady. They both thought that they had their chance last weekend when I had arranged to have Raechel's mother drop Jake off at one of his Grandmother's houses. Well, the minute Grandma found out about the arrangement, she was off to open the lines of communication between every relative within a 20 mile radius. I'm still amazed that Jake's other Grandma didn't get a speeding ticket on her way over rushing to try and beat Raechel and her Mother! Well, they were all there waiting to sprout like white on rice. I think they had lookouts in every window to watch for them. Much to their chagrin Jacob sensed long before his arrival that his Grandma was cooking something up and it wasn't her chocolate chip cookies. I can only picture what took place when he arrived. Probably before the truck even turned into the driveway the door was already open and Jake's foot was dragging the driveway. Apparently Jacob hopped out and sent the unsuspecting Raechel on her way. My Husband and I passed them on their way out of the neighborhood. I started giggling telling my Husband what Jacob had probably pulled. And you guessed it, when we pulled in his Grandmother about fell out of the front door shocked that Jacob had pulled one over on her. I can only tell you that all the teen boys within 100 miles were feeling for the 'ol boy as two peeved Grandmothers proceeded to give him the what-for for the next 30 minutes all the while why he sat there looking like a little wet dog with his tail between his legs but secretly laughing all the way to the bank. . . . . . . . .
